    Useability. Portability. Consistent performance. That's what you get with the SkyWatcher GOTO 14" Dobsonian Telescope - in an affordable package. Compare it to other truss tube designs and you'll find that the SkyWatcher Go To 14" Dobsonian Telescope doesn't need you to disassemble it between uses. Simply transport it as two compact pieces, assemble it in seconds and you're ready to go!

    Collimation has become quick and easy with this Dobsonian, requiring no fiddly readjustments between uses – even through an entire night's worth of use. Its Tension Control Handles will manipulate the tension between the optical tube and the sideboard, for you to have precise control over the angle of your scope.

    The SynScan AZ hand control allows you point your telescope at a specific object, or even tour the night sky at the touch of a button!! The user-friendly menu system allows automatic slewing to over 42,900+ objects. Even an inexperienced astronomer can master its variety of features in a few observing sessions. The patented dual encoder design allows the telescope to be moved manually whenever the user wishes - but with no need for re-alignment! The SkyWatcher GoTo Dobsonian Series combines the convenience and affordability of the traditional Dobsonian with the convenience of a computerized Go-To telescope.
